4 arrested in Concord Village gambling dispute

Four men, including three residents of Concord Village Apartments, were arrested Tuesday after two of them made false reports that they were robbed at the apartment complex, according to the Peachtree City Police Department.

The police investigation began after one of the suspects came to the emergency room at Piedmont Fayette Hospital with head injuries, reportign that he had been robbed at the complex by three black males, police said.

Shortly after, a second suspect came to the Piedmont Fayette ER with a hand injury, claiming that he had been robbed by three white males, police said.

Leon Redding was charged with one felony count of aggravated assault, while Dowe, Sutton and Clifton Redding were cahrged with one felony count of making false statements and one misdemeanor count of affray.
